[MUSIC].
Here's an exercise to give us basic
chord voicings and a little progression,
it's like an eight bar progression, and
then we go through some keys with it.
I'm not gonna go through
all the keys with you, but
I have a bunch written there, and
then you can see the voicing for yourself.
So, the chord progression
starts with an A with an add 9.
[MUSIC]
And then an A add 9 with a flat six.
[MUSIC]
Then an A five,
which is a root five in octave.
And then A major with a flatted five.
[MUSIC]
Then an A sus.
[MUSIC]
And an A major.
An A minor.
[MUSIC]
And A major.
[MUSIC]
Again,
here's the progression
[MUSIC]
A at 9, A at 9 flat 6, A flat,
A major with a flatted five.
[MUSIC]
A sus,
[MUSIC]
A major.
[MUSIC]
A minor.
[MUSIC]
So, without saying the names,
just so you can listen to the music.
[MUSIC]
Here's
it in B
flat.
[MUSIC]
Here's
it in
B.
[MUSIC]
And
I'll do
one more
in C.
